It is important to get a patients informed consent and to be sure that they understand the procedure they are about to undergo, why they need the treatment, the risks involved, and the ramifications behind the decision to give their consent. When a patient does not fully comprehend a procedure, how can we as nurses expect them to readily agree to medical interventions blindly?

This would make the subordinates feel that they are being appreciated owing to which they would start working in a more efficient manner. The skills required to support the performance role is to be able to be willing to work for extra hours. This way, the subordinates would take inspiration from the head nurse regarding work and may look up to him/her and might turn up early for work as well.

According to estimates, at least 1.5 million preventable medication errors and adverse drug events occur each year in the United States. One-third of all medication errors occur during the administration phase of medication delivery (Durham, 2015). Medication safety is freedom from preventable harm with medication use; therefore, nurses must promote patient safety by understanding their contributions to the prevention of medication error (Choo, Hutchinson, & Bucknall, 2010). Additionally, a medication error is any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate medication use or patient harm while the medication is in the control of the health care professional. Thus, to promote medication safety, nurses must understand their roles in proper medication management and identify challenges that associated with medication safety.
